. let's get the latest from kristin welker at the white house. hey, kristin. >> hey, karen. >> there's been some serious stuff, this back and forth today between the white house and john boehner and harry reid and nancy pelosi. is there any response that you're getting from the white house to this latest, quote, unquote pru unquote, plan that the republicans have put forward? >> reporter: the white house is sort of echoing what you're hearing from majority leader reid which is they're encouraged by the fact that the republicans seem to be moving on this issue and willing to increase the debt ceiling. however, i think what is going to be a problem from the white house's perspective is that three months. i was speaking with a senior administration official a little earlier today and he sort of reiterated the fact that the president is opposed to this idea of increasing the debt ceiling in these small increments because it creates crises every couple of months. so that could be a potential problem moving forward, but what is significant i think in the eyes of the white house is house spea

bourbon street. kristin fisher found a place to float the day away. >> reporter: well, love from the steamboat in the middle of the mississippi river. and this is about as peaceful a place as you're going to find in new orleans right now because right now the city is gearing up for an influx of one million people as we are just days away from what's being called super gras, the convergence of mardi gras and the super bowl all in one weekend. and the reason i really love this steamboat is it kind of gives you a nice flavor of all the best that new orleans has to offer. come on in and i'll show you what i'm talking about. we've got the steamboat stompers inside playing because what would new orleans be without some good jazz music, right? these guys have been playing throughout the duration of this two-hour long afternoon jazz cruise. take a listen. ♪ >> reporter: it wouldn't be mardi gras, wouldn't are new orleans without jazz. and of course there's nothing quite like new orleans than the mississippi river. and to chat a bit more about the steamboat, we've got the captain himself, c
